| Major H. A. Cameron|
HE biography of Major H. A. Cameron makes, perhaps, as interesting reading as can be found within the covers of Cornwall Cheese Board History. Conspicuous by an enthusiasm and patriotism that would have done credit to a much younger man than himself, Major Cameron, immediately upon war being declared in 1914, offered his services to his King and country. He was placed second in command of the 59th Battalion Stormont and Dundas, and with part of this unit he went on canal duty in August, 1914, and was placed in charge of the forces on the lower part of the Cornwall Canal.
He was appointed recruiting officer in Cornwall in 1915, and was successful in recruiting about 500 men for active service overseas. In August, 1915, Major Cameron was appointed second in command of the 59th Overseas Battalion under Colonel Dawson, and sailed for England with this unit in April, 1916.
